When the FCC voted in favor of new net neutrality regulations this past Thursday, the vote fell along party lines, with Democrats voting in favor and Republicans in opposition.
After the vote was in, President Obama thanked the more than 4 million people who flooded the FCC’s website in support of net neutrality, saying that “calling for change” is the “backbone of our democracy.” Going back to Nov. 2014, Obama called on the FCC to regulate broadband like a public utility.
But conservatives see things differently. Privileging one form of Web traffic over another doesn’t really concern them. They believe the FCC shouldn’t have the authority to regulate the Internet at all.
Earlier this week, the A Good Cartoon tumblr posted a bunch of political cartoons on the subject that showed absolutely zero understanding of the plan. The person behind the post remade the cartoons, but replaced the words in main bubble of each cartoon with “the cartoonist has no idea how net neutrality works.”
For some reason, the post has been taken down, but we were able to grab a few of the images and share them with you here.
